Personal

I reside in Eugene Oregon with my family since 2003 coming from Burlington Vermont via Ottawa Canada. I am married to an amazing partner Ginny Burkey, who is a Seattle native. Our son Noah is at University in Florida; we are very excited for him. Being a true Canadian, I continue to play ice hockey and have volunteered since 2003 as a coach for the Lane Amateur Hockey Association in Eugene. I have a B.S. degree in Economics and Environmental Science from Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario, Canada graduating in 1984.

I also own an Executive Rental Service company, www.RentOregon.net. With my team, we continue to assist professionals, retirees, and human resource managers who require help finding the perfect rental property when relocating to Lane County, before they consider purchasing a home. We also thoroughly evaluate the market for landlord investors/sellers who want to list their home.
